As the necessary stamps in the passports for bands to leave America?
See Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Secretly Canadian's roster, Bella Union's roster, Sub Pop's roster
the only one T shirt, three months in the facility and the wild-look-in-the-eye look of No Age, Deerhunter, also Sub Pop's other bands
Or indeed Pitchforky hybrids thereof:
Animal Collective, Sunset Rubdown etc
when I looks at the prevailing trends at home:
short guitar straps, no ambition other than stringing a few bangers together, no fx pedals, OIM IN A BAND MATE, I'M NOT A FACKING CANT, IN A FACKING BAND, AND LIFE IS FACKIN 'ARD, SO LET'S 'AVE IT, YOU 'EAR ME, YOU CANT? lyrics
I am going off my meds and binning my razors too.
